Echinacea ‘SunMagic’ are one like the other!

In rooting the Echinacea ‘SunMagic’ are one like the other and  after transplanting into the container as well!

This series is not only very good branching, it is growing very uniform after transplanting the TC. The picture shows  the 60cell trays with liners of the ‘SunMagic Vintage Ruby’

The ‘Vintage Ruby’ is slightly more compact than the others and does a great job in 15 – 19 cm Containers. ‘Ruby remains compact also when grown tied. Below pictures show the ‘Vintage Ruby’ in production

This year Hartwig Bull did start production of Echinacea in week 14 in a 15cm pot.

The crop grows in a “Fillclair” polytunnel. The temperature setting for the heating is 10°C / 50°F. This is mainly because of the mixed bedding plant Hanging Basket and Mixed contatiners, which are standing next to the Echinacea. The Echinacea could do whitout any heating!

Both crops are doing good together. The Hanging Basket with Petunia, Sutera, Verbena and Calibrachoa are harden up pretty good and show a perfect quality with great colors coming.

During rooting short days!
